Product Review- Tom's Natural Toothpaste

Green Earth Journey

My family and I have been using Tom's Toothpaste for 4 months now. The first flavor we picked up was Peppermint. Peppermint did not go over well with the whole family. My husband really likes the peppermint, my 7 yr old son hated the peppermint, and I could live without. It was a little too bitter.
